We are pleased to announce our shipping integration with Sendbox, a logistics platform that provides delivery services to e-commerce businesses.
For many merchants, order fulfillment is not considered the most glamorous aspect of running an eCommerce business.
The reason is that it involves end-to-end services such as getting products from warehouses, packaging, handing them to shippers, and possibly sending an automated email response to customers to let them know their packages are in transit. This is easier said than done apparently.
With Sendbox, retailers on Tradift would be able to ship their products from the comfort of their homes, in a fast and secure way.
In this post, We'll walk you through how to:
- Connect your Sendbox account to Tradift
